Ying Liang
VR, China 2005
100 min

A 17-year-old boy from a village in the province Sechuan leaves for the big city looking for his father, who left six years before and has not been heard of since. The fact that his mother still receives money from his father does nothing to tame his anger. He is certainly not looking for a warm reunion; it is unconcealed revenge that drives him. Totally lost and deserted, he roams the big city with his basket of ducks on his back. Independent films are often made on a very small budget, but the budget of debut film maker Ying Liang was so small that it can hardly be described as a budget. The crew consisted of friends and acquaintances, and they were all volunteers in front of the camera, too. Even the camera itself had to be borrowed. The result is a strikingly charming, tender yet poetic film that provides evidence of vision and a steady style.
